Wasteland took about 3 years to be shot. This inspiring Documentary is about the "catadores", people who collect trash in Jardin Gramacho, in Rio de Janeiro. Vik Muniz, photographer, decided to help them by photographing them, and putting all the photos in auctions, in order to raise money for their community.
I haven't seen it yet, just the trailer. But it looks unbelievable and I can't wait to watch it.
I just made a phone call to Cinema Village, in New York City, to find out until when they would be playing, and they informed me that they extended it til next week.
WASTELAND is playing in New York til Thursday, February 17th. Worth watching it!!!
